OK,

Also I've checked, the new erlang is in the PATH when running the, 
regardless of what you set before running make. So that's not the problem.

I cannot in anyway reproduce this. So a few questions...
What platform do you have?
Can you run the command manually (emd2exml)?
Is escript working for other scripts?
Is the git directory clean?
What are your configure parameters?

Did this exactly on clean master. No problems...

Yup - P  means it's not a release (preliminary), Ericsson nomenclature...

Don't know what that means. How about clean R15B02?
